Abstract

This study was undertaken to analyze whether luxury fashion retail brands can adhere to their core essence of providing personalized care through e-services rather than through traditional face-to-face interactions, particularly through Chatbot, an emerging digital tool offering convenient, personal, and unique customer assistance. The authors use customer data to test a five-dimension model measuring Chatbot for customer perceptions of interaction, entertainment, trendiness, customization, and problem-solving. The study reveals that Chatbot e-service provides interactive and engaging brand/customer service encounters. Marketers and managers in the luxury context can adopt the instrument to measure whether e-service agents provide desired outcomes and to determine whether they should adopt Chatbot virtual assistance.
